    Me and my husband were house hunting one day with our realtor ( we are first time homebuyers) we had looked all day with not so much luck and I didnt even want to see the last house I was ready to go home but my husband insisted ( so glad he did). When we walked in the home it was entirely decorated with quilts all over! From the wall, to furniture, beds, racks.. ect.. The owner was a quilter!! She had a nice quilting room set up as way. The house ended up being perfect for us and we close in 2 weeks! So blessed that God led my steps to our new home and what a great fit it's going to be, they're will always be a quilter residing there :) The owner also let me buy all her quilt racks, and wall hooks, and a nice iron bed to display my quilts on.. but as a true quilter she declined my request to buy a quilt :)

    How providential. At least you know that you have a quilting space that will work! Enjoy your new home.

    What a wonderful blessing! God does work in amazing ways. I'm so happy for you and your family. How nice of the previous owner to share of her quilt hanging hardward and the bed! Wow! I'm sure you just can't wait until you get to move.

    Wow, that sure was meant to be! You're going to love living in that house. What fun it will be to decorate it knowing that the previous owner would approve of it being decorated with quilted things! :thumbup:

    Congrats on the new quilter's house.

    I always tell those who are house hunting, "You will just 'know' when it is the right house for you. You have found it!

    God knew your wants and needs and he worked through your husband and the realtor to give you not only what you needed, but what you wanted. As I say, God is good all the time, All the time, GOD IS GOOD!!!!

    Congrats and let us know when the housewarming is! That's a must for a brand new first time homeowner!!!!!
